  • We went on a tour from Anes tour to this museum. The guide was not quite well-spoken in Russian, but perfectly knows the history and knows how to present it interestingly. First for about half an hour the story of the guide, and then free time, look and take pictures. We liked not tiring and interesting.

  • The entrance ticket to the museum and the Colosseum 12 dinar.The museum is modest. Of course, you need to come individually. With the group, you won't have time to enjoy. Even the street heat is not strongly felt.

  • A fascinating little museum with gorgeous mosaics, interesting artifacts, and a handful of ancient homes. The real treasure here, however, was the gentleman curator who gave me a tour of the place! He had a wealth of knowledge, was eager to converse, and really made each piece come to life. Really a must-see is you’re at the amphitheater anyway.
  • Included in your ticket for the amphitheatre this place is often overlooked but well worth the 10 minute walk to see one of the best collections of Roman mosaics anywhere.
